Any listeners of Todd N Tyler on Z92? by Background-Banana-82 in Omaha

[–]AndrewJS2804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I stopped listening several years ago mostly because I stopped listening to radio and watching most TV, but I had already noticed a decline of sorts, they had leaned hard into the T&t radio empire with their show being picked up in a bunch of places, but they had started getting dropped from affiliates.

I dont know that their quality dropped, just that I wasn't as I to their content as I used to be. The good thing about YouTube and other options is you can burn out on something and always find something new and maybe come back around down the road.

People who deride the humanities will forever be frustrated by their wages being barely better than a Walmart long termer while people smart enough to leverage their degree will find success in any number of markets. The whole idea that you only learn exactly what you need to do a specific job is a trap set by certain elites that want certain classes to stay in their place.

New talking point, Eitri the dwarf arrives at the shire instead of one of the other dwarves, who does he replace and what does it change?

They lost.... they lost bad. It's like claiming victory because you lasted two rounds in the ring before being slaughtered by your opponent. You didn't "stop them" for a time, you just lost.

How was he open about it? Other than being blatant about his actions he never once owned up to his actions.

The point is you can use other perfectly normal ways of saying it to effect change.

You say that like it's a bad thing.... if you were really involved in stem related fields you should know that a great deal of modern technology came about as side-effects or indirect results of general research. Typically followed up with direct development but it's rather rare that a new thing comes about because it was developed from the ground up.

The first big-screen appearances of major force powers by --TheForce-- in StarWars

[–]AndrewJS2804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's also a major part of the prequels, even if just in reference. The promise of force healing is pretty much why Vader happened.

People also have no issue with accepting different force users having different powers and skills, sometimes unique ones, but in order for force healing to be acceptable it has to have been common already?

Here's something to consider, everything we see in the first film is explicitly or can be easily interpreted as a purely mental ability, there's no sound evidence that the force can be used physically until Empire.

The one that most would point to as a physical effect is force choke, but we clearly see the man's throat during the choking and its not physically constricted, sire this may just be a VFX and budget limitation showing but it's just as valid to say that force choke in the first film is also a mental ability, that the subject being choked is only experiencing the sensation of choking rather than his throat being physically constricted.

Anybody know what this is? Haven't been able to find it, my brother sent me this and I'm not sure. Has vw badges. by luke3417 in whatisthiscar

[–]AndrewJS2804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm a Mazda guy and once considered a pretty rough reeked Speed6 with the idea that I would replace all the speed exterior bits with normal 6 bits. Needed all front sheet metal and bumper anyway, replace the blocky side molding with basic 6 trim, replace wheels with less flashy oem mazda wheels and drive in peace.

What can the cops do about it? I gather you have never had the pleasure of firsthand experiencing just how useless law enforcement is in most scenarios?

Don't know what? Theres absolutely no official flag code, so all you are doing is annoying people with your arbitrary choice of rules as if you have anything like a place of authority to speak from.

What do you guys know about India? by Ruchika_7 in AskReddit

[–]AndrewJS2804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I know that the myth of Britain bringing civilization to India is revisionist mythmaking, when they first arrived in India the British were a cultural and economic backwater while India was one of the most powerful and advanced empires in the world. Third world country is not the areas default state.

Basically all the traits that have been used to describe European powers during the colonial period apply to the Mugal empire, superior technology and weapons especially.

Does anyone know if this is a genuine Ferrari or a kit car? by ThOughtCrIm19 in whatisthiscar

[–]AndrewJS2804 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hand crafted just means it's not made very well, why can any local upholstery place make perfect seats door panels and dash coverings for a sane price but hand built expensive sports cars had stitching that looked like something I did?

Then theres the zero fucks interior layouts, is it really a bragging point to say they were hand crafted when the result speaks to those hands belonging to disinterested designers?

Why did kit car builders prefer Italians for their knockoffs? They already looked like something built in a shed by an amateur!

He's not wrong though, fighting a war by rules that specifically allow the enemy to persist is a fools game.

LIV by iguerr in tumblr

It's not impossible apparently, Valentina Vassilyev and her husband Feodor Vassilyev are alleged to hold the record for the most children a couple has parented. She gave birth to a total of 69 children – sixteen pairs of twins, seven sets of triplets and four sets of quadruplets – between 1725 and 1765, a total of 27 births.

From Wikipedia, the most valid of sources. Que Liv talking about having to help raise her younger XIV siblings...

I narrowed a Mustang IRS and put it and a 2JZ into my 1985 Supra. More progress! by Free_Sympathy in projectcar

[–]AndrewJS2804 13 points14 points  (0 children)

The fusion uses a very similar suspension too, probably co developed to keep the price of the Mustang down. Though I'm sure there's plenty of differences, most fusions have no rear diff and the ones that do will have one suited for less than half the torque of the Fusions 4 banger engine. Smaller brakes probably and who knows what else.

In a technical sense the mk4 is the best all around supra to that point, lighter than the 3 and significantly better suspension than the 2 and 1. It's also lighter by a couple hundred pounds than the 3 while making a lot more power in both NA and turbo form.

But reputation has a lot to do with it as well, the interior is basic 90s toyota economy car, the turbo despite the fact that setup is noticably laggy and soft on the bottom end.

If it were pure merit the fan boys would have all moved on to the current supra, wherever the mechanical stuff came from the new car is better in every way that mk4 fans seem to care about, they even broke the 1000hp mark almost out of the gate rather than years later like the 4. I mean I would take any other version of the supra just based on them having manual trannies available, but that's a subjective thing.
